AceShowbiz - Todrick Hall is more cautious about who he allows into his "circle" after he was accused of not paying performers and mistreating his employees.
The star rose to fame on "American Idol" back in 2009 before going on to carve out a successful career in music, TV, and theatre, but came under fire last year when dancer Thom White shared a thread on Twitter about his negative experience of working with Todrick.
Thom alleged he was not paid for dance work, and claimed the performer discriminated against the black dancers on set, accusing him of asking, "Can I get some lighter people behind me?"
"My fans have stood beside me, and they know my heart and my integrity, and they know what type of person I am," he said. "They know that I would never intentionally do some of these things, any of these things that are being said about me."
However, Todrick insisted he's now become more cautious when it comes to the people he works with, explaining, "(I will) be more careful about who I allow into my circle. My show is full of love and I focus on that every night..."
He added, "When some kid comes and tells me that because of my music and my message they didn't take their own life, that they are now wearing heels at school, and they are winning prom queens. I'll sleep with one eye open, but what I'm not going to stop doing is inspiring kids."
Following Thom's allegations, Todrick also faced claims of misconduct from "Drag Race" alum Manila Luzon, who alleged he also owed her money, while his former assistant Thomas McKissock agreed with Thom's claims he was late with payments and showed racist tendencies.
